It's finally stopped snowing!

But when I made my card for today it had been snowing for two days straight! I tell ya, I was nearly ready to start building an arc on skis! LOL!!!

So I'm kicking off my first post of the year with a Christmas card for next holiday season! Woo hoo!!! I really enjoyed making a card-a-week last year and I'm going to continue that tradition again this year. You should join me! You won't believe how much stress it alleviates come December. I used last week's Mojo sketch, Mojo119, for the layout.

In light of all the snow I chose my Hat and Mitts image from Stamping Bella. I started by stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper then I coloured it with copics. I added Glamour Dust glitter to the pompom and trim on the toque for a little sparkle. The image is cut out with circle Nestabilities and layered onto a scallop circle of Blush Red Light.

The patterned paper is from my Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad and it's layered onto Suede Brown Medium. I stamped the sentiment onto Baby Blue Light before running it through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. This is by far my very fave Cuttlebug folder...I seem to be using it on everything lately! I added some olive grosgrain ribbon and one of my beloved ghost snowflakes, then topped them with platinum Glitter Dots. I want to give a shout out to my friend Leslie who sent me a slew of ghost snowflakes because she knows how much I {heart} them. It was perfect timing too because my stash was getting critically low! Thanks Leslie!!!  :)

Bellarific Friday challenges are back on and this week's theme is 'back to school'. You'll find all the details on Bloggabella. I hope you'll play along...back to school doesn't need to mean creative...cosmos, lattes, the sort of thing that parents do to celebrate back to school! grin!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
